Medieval Plague Dinner Party

A plague party in the middle of a pandemic... too soon?  Maybe... but 14 year old boys have a dark sense of humor and so I decided to bank on that and just fall, head first, into the theme of the year... which apparently is plagues.  

If you have been following my blog for any amount of years, you have probably seen the HUGE parties I usually throw my incredibly extroverted son, Logan.

Forced to painfully tame his guest list, we decided to go all out with a sit down dinner.

Everyone got plague masks to wear and rats to have as pets (not really, they were plastic) and a huge medieval feast!

I created a medieval ambiance with a cardboard and tissue paper stained glass wall that I tucked into my window to create a upscale but macabre kind of vibe.

The "feast" was a full table charcuterie board with bread and 4 kinds of meat, 7 types of cheese, two types of grapes, two types of figs, dried fruit, jelly beans, salmon spread, nuts, chocolate candies, and any other decadence I could fit in.

The activities were this Madlib I made up special for the event and then we all sat on the couch with our snacks and watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Always a crowd pleaser!
